Dissatisfaction with overseas hardware and our endless pursuit towards "making it better..." led us into a partnership with a Swiss bearing manufacturer. As a result of this union, our sliding doors come with rollers assembled in the USA, equipped with authentic Swiss bearings.
Exception: Fleetwood's entry level patio door, the Series 1000, has a rolling system similar to other sliding doors on the market. Our competitors market their rollers as"precision bearings" but we disclose the Series 1000 rollers as "sealed bearings" because they are not Swiss in origin and are from the overseas roller industry..Rolex versus Timex.
Note: This door is equipped with high performance, Swiss bearing rollers. Operate with care.
